The Eastern Ohio NSDA District Committee invites you to participate at our 2018 Eastern Ohio NSDA District Tournament! It is our opportunity to gather and celebrate the outstanding talents of our student-competitors as we determine our 2018 National Speech & Debate Association National Qualifiers in speech and debate!
Registration and our EOHNSDA District Coaches’ Meeting will be at Perry HS on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 5:00 pm. Competition will be held Friday, February 16 and Saturday, February 17, 2018 at Perry HS.
This year, Eastern Ohio is at National Qualification Level 2. This means that with 4 entries in each team event, from at least 2 schools-- Policy Debate, Public Forum Debate and Duo Interpretation; and with 4 entries in each individual event, from at least 2 schools -- Drama, Humor, POI, Oratory, Informative Speaking United States Extempore; International Extempore and Lincoln/Douglas Debate; that compete in at least one round, we will be entitled to two (2) National Qualifiers per event. We can attain three (3) National qualifiers in any team event with at least 30 entries and any individual event with 38 entries. This does not take into account any auto-qualifiers. We encourage all teams to maximize their tournament entries to reach the third national qualifier in as many events as possible.
Judges are always an issue. Please do your best, then do your very best to obtain judges. As a district, we are committed to using 3-judge panels in all events, but we really gotta have judges to make this a reality! As a matter of fact, it is truly helpful if schools with smaller entries can exceed their judge quotas!
The Eastern Ohio NSDA District Tournament is always challenging. Let's do our best to support each other and meet these challenges in a cooperative spirit! After all, it is our unity that makes Eastern Ohio the largest NSDA District in Ohio!
Make sure you read all the information on Joy of Tournaments. Obtain your purchase order, print an invoice, register your kids, find your judges, fill in all the details and remember: It's always a PEACEFUL Paradise at Perry!!
